DNC/RNC 2008... subMedia tv on the ground... part 1 of 4
For documentary film, please visit:
During the Democratic and Republican 2008 National Conventions, our PepperSpray team linked up with frequent contributor to "Indymedia Presents", Franklin Lopez, creator of "Its the End of the World As We Know It, and I Feel Fine."
While reporting on behalf of the people of the United States, two Pepperspray reporters, Lambert Rochfort and Joe LaSac, were wrongfully arrested at the RNC in St. Paul, as was "Democracy Now!" host Amy Goodman. http://www.democracynow.org
Each day Franklin pulled it all together to put out a report through his subMedia TV website... http://submedia.tv
Indymedia Presents highlights Franklin's work in four episodes.
A Film Documentary: Ground Noise & Static
The documentary film, Ground Noise & Static, is "the direct result of a wonderful collaboration with many indymedia-style activists and journalists who all pitched in for the common good and success of their various efforts to tell their “Unconventional” stories."
"In November, one or the other of the corporate candidates will win, and then, as always, it will be what the people do, not the politicians, that counts."
The documentary is a joint effort of Franklin López of subMedia TV and PepperSpray Productions.
